The 38-year-old star – who underwent a double mastectomy in February – is reportedly the subject of a bidding war for the rights to her autobiography, and the battle has already hit around £31 million.
A source at one US publisher told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: ‘Whoever gets her will be sitting on a gold mine.
‘Her book is guaranteed to top the bestseller lists in virtually every country on the planet and even an advance of that size would be recouped within weeks.’
A friend of the ‘Salt’ actress – who has six children, Maddox, 12, Pax, nine, Zahara, eight, Shiloh, seven, and five-year-old twins, Knox and Vivienne with fiance Brad Pitt – revealed Angelina thinks ‘the time is now right’ to pen her book, and she won’t be holding back.
The insider said: ‘She has always wanted to do this and believes the time is now right … She has never known such peace and fulfilment in her life.
‘There are demons in her past but she is in a place mentally and spiritually where she feels comfortable enough to write about them honestly and put them in context.
‘No issues – apart from those that might damage her children’s privacy – will be taboo.’
